Explore hunting and its role in conservation, hear from an unlikely self-taught hunter, and meet people and organizations with resources for hunting.

Robyn Migliorini is a 30-year-old self-taught hunter. She explains how a city-dwelling, vegan backpacker became interested in the sport, “Hunting was a logical outgrowth of my philosophical approach toward food and my growing identity as an outdoorswoman. I wanted to eat meat again, but I didn’t want to outsource the job. I wanted not only to know how the steak got to my plate but also to take responsibility for the process. Hunting meant feeding myself, developing a more intimate relationship with the land, and supporting the critical conservation efforts that protect these wild places.” Hear more from Robyn on how hunting aligned with her conservation values as well as her path to learning the sport and entering a new community.
